set offline file cache location in windows 8

Hi Folks,

Trying to setup and offline file cache on a windows 8 machine but I need to set the cache location to the d drive but the links I have followed are not allowing me to delete the CSC folder in the c:\windows\ folder and so I cannot create the folder in the D drive.

Any suggestions would be appreciated.

Regards
Andy

You can follow this KB article. Note that you should first change the settings, reboot, and after the new folder has been created you can delete the old one:

Try re-enabling Offline Files then run this command to reset the cache:
REG ADD "HKLM\System\CurrentControlSet\Services\CSC\Parameters" /v FormatDatabase /t REG_DWORD /d 1 /f

Disable Offline Files and then try moving the folder using whatever method you were going to use originally.
